The Words of Hak Ja Han Moon from 2013
Most beloved Heavenly Parent: How could there not be praise and laudation on this glorified occasion! This is the first year in which the history of the providence of restoration through indemnity carried out by the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind is brought to completion and a new era is ushered in. Beginning with the Holy Wedding of True Parents in 1960, Heaven has carried out the providence of salvation for humanity, which was born into the lineage of Satan due to the Fall and who have been moaning in anguish.
True Mother speaking to second-generation members that have adhered to the Cheon Il Guk matching standards (or have received permission to participate from True Parents) and desire to be matched directly by True Parents, as many of their parents were.
Through the Holy Wedding of True Parents, they were permitted the grace of being born into a new lineage, and You have lighted a beacon of hope for the fallen humanity through the great Blessing Ceremonies, which was first commenced with the blessing of 36 couples in 1960 and has now been held 53 times until today, January 8, 2013 [on the Heavenly Calendar]. However, we are lacking in so many ways and we have been unable to fulfill our missions and responsibilities given to us by Heaven as blessed couples. We truly have no excuses to offer.
Candidates face off at an early stage of the distillation to one man and one woman as a base for a godly family.
Our Heavenly Parent: You have nevertheless embraced us in Your bosom in this first year of Foundation Day. I hope and pray that all blessed families of the Unification Church across the world and the blessing ceremony participants gathered here today will fulfill their responsibilities and missions before our Heavenly Parent and the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, return infinite glory to Heaven in the face of the great significance of Cheon Il Guk lead lives of practicing the true love of the Heavenly Parent in all corners of the world, and be reborn as proud blessed families who can open the gates to Cheon Il Guk in this new era of unceasing laudation and praise.
The blessed families present here today, and the newly Blessed 12,000 couples receiving the Blessing across the globe through the internet, all resolve anew before Heaven to dedicate their lives and give everything they have to become Your proud people who can return the blessings given to them from Heaven. Our Heavenly Parent, please accept this promise we make before You.
May laudation and praise last forevermore to the ends of the earth. Aju!
